[image]Three-dimensional perspective views of Venusian Terrains composed of reduced resolution left-looking synthetic-aperture radar images merged with altimetry data from the Magellan spacecraft. - NASA
The view shows a 100-km-wide nova superposed on Yavine Corona, a 500-km-wide asymmetric feature at latitude 5 degrees S., longitude 248.5 degrees; looking northeast. Coronae are roughly circular, volcanic features believed to form over hot upwellings of magma within the Venusian mantle. Yavine corona contains 2 novae; nova are circular hills with star-shaped fractures. The view is a close-up of the southern nova showing its fractures to be grabens or fault bound depressions...

[image]Three-dimensional perspective views of Venusian Terrains composed of reduced resolution left-looking synthetic-aperture radar images merged with altimetry data from the Magellan spacecraft. - NASA
The view shows part of Galindo (V40) quadrangle looking north; 200 km wide Nagavonyi Corona is in the foreground. Coronae are roughly circular, volcanic features believed to form over hot upwellings of magma within the Venusian mantle. A 2-km shield volcano behind the corona partly buries the Phoebo Regio highlands (shown as radar-bright mounds).

This crater is shown as a representative of Venusian craters that are of the proper diameter (about 15 kilometers) to be 'transitional' in their morphology between 'complex' and irregular' craters. Complex craters account for about 96 percent of all craters on Venus with diameters larger than about 15 kilometers; they are thought ...
